Will I skip my scheduled period...?

if I started taking the pill 4 days before it is supposed to start or will it still come?

Also if that was too soon to start taking it to stop my period coming how much earlier would I have had to take it to skip this period?

Thanks

You have to take the active pills all the way thru and not take any of the placebo pills. In other words, skip those and start on the new pack at the end of the 3 weeks.

Maybe if you started a good week before your period was due but it might not work.
You could ask your doctor about the specific pill because they don't all work the same.
